Colosso are a band from Portugal that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very progressive and experimental form of death metal and this is a review of t heir self released 2016 album "Obnoxious" which will be released in September.
A very heavy guitar sound starts off the album along with some blast beats a few seconds alter which also become a very huge part of the recording while the vocals are done in a death metal growling style and all of the musical instruments sound very powerful while clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of t he recording.
A decent amount of melody can be heard in the guitar riffing and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while also getting atmospheric at times while a great amount of prog metal elements are also utilized and some songs also bring in high pitched screams and some of the fast parts also bring in a small amount of tremolo picking and as the album progresses spoken word samples and experimental sounds can also be heard in certain sections of the recording along with a brief use of acoustic guitars while later tracks bring in traces of industrial and ambient.
Colosso plays a musical style that remains true to the progressive death metal style they have established and previous releases while also adding in elements of ambient, experimental to take their music to another level, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark and philosophical themes.
in my opinion this is another great sounding from Colosso and if you are a fan of progressive death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "In Memoriam" "As Resonance" "To Purify" and "A Noxious Reflection". 8 out of 10.
